Quilted Tote Bag Timeless Treasures

This is my own pattern "Stephanie" #009. It is a braid quilted pattern.
I just love the fabric. It is by Timeless Treasures, the rose pattern. I quilted the bag and gave it some machine decorative stitch on the top and bottom.
It has a double shoulder strap with a loop over a button closure.
The bag is for a friend. I am very excited to send this one out.
I have another one I am working on, the colors are going to be in the blue family. I am very excited. I will have three different fabric prints for this next one. :0)

Purse Contest

There is a lot going on in my group of faaaaabulous handbag artists. I am very excited to announce that we are having our very first contest.
Members apply to my moderator and I, then they have a certain time frame to complete a bag. Then 4 pictures that best suites the bag they have made will be placed in a folder, members of the group will then choose and place 3 winners, top honors, 1st and second.
I am very excited. I think this is a great way for them to participate in the group activities.
The exciting part for me is looking at their amazing talents, getting them to push their box a little bit farther then their norm.
I will post pictures of the bags when we get closer.
Good luck my friends!!

Lavender Rose quilted Bag

I absolutely love this bag. The fabric is just so beautiful. I could not see it done any other way. It reminds me of a basket of flowers. I made each individual fabric flower. They are across the entire front of the bag.

On the back side of the bag is a single pocket with an additional rose added as an embellishment.
The top of the bag is quilted along with the inside. Inside also has additional pockets as well.
This is my own pattern and is available on all of my stores. Links are located at the top right side of this page.
Thank you for looking.
